CREATES ALTERNATIVE ENERGY MINOR
MARQUETTE – In
light of global warming and the increasing costs
of energy and gasoline, electrical generating facilities worldwide are looking
to alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power as a means of
producing electricity and heat. Germany
and several other foreign countries have been harnessing alternative energy for
decades, and the practice is now spreading to much of the United States, including California,
Texas and the Midwest.
Starting in the 2006 fall semester, Northern
will implement an alternative energy minor, giving students
the opportunity to learn about this burgeoning industry and familiarize
themselves with its technology.
The 20-credit minor consists of the
following courses: introduction to alternative energies, DC circuit analysis,
solar power, wind power, bioenergy, and heating systems II.
